UK manufacturer of glass wool insulation products required a marking system as part of the quality and reject process on the production line. Scanning systems, operating 24/7 on the line check for imperfections in the glass wool and upon detection automatically initiate the reject marking process relative to the location of the defect across the web. Xact proposed our MPERIA™ V-Series printing system including 6 x 8000+ V series print heads. The 8000+ V series heads positioned across the line are activated to apply the reject mark relative the position of the defect.
Key to the decision-making process and placing their business with Xact was the unrivalled flexibility and mark quality the system provided the business, including;
- Complete control over the size and repetition of the reject mark in conjunction with our range of high contrast inks provides clear identification of the rejected product which can easily be identified further down the line as part of the final rejection process (i.e. ejection of the product from the line)
- Our unrivalled throw distance (head-to-product) ensures the marking process is unaffected by significant variances in product thickness, which in turn means no adjustment to the operating height of the heads is required between production runs or changeovers
- The V-Series heads offer the most industrial printing technology on the market and are already proven within the insulation sector, so the tough operating conditions of the plant are no issue to the long-term performance and reliability of the marking system
- Our years of expertise within the industrial sector, in-particular our knowledge of coding & marking construction products also provided added confidence to move forward with Xact
